    secret lives creep
    on tippy-toes in the streets
    away from their households
    as the family sleeps

    shadows tend to gossip
    as they slither throughout the night
    sneaky whispers break the silence
    baby the time is right...”

    she is to him
    what others never were
    she is the love he never had
    he is security for her

    mama bought into daddy's dream
    but won’t invest in the man
    being patient while he made it
    wasn’t part of her plan

    now daddy works long hours
    'cause the grown kids are gone away
    inter-marital dysfunction
    leads to extra-marital dates

    baby girl liked bad boys
    with foul mouths and tattoos
    she thought that daddy was a lame
    because he preached and wore suits

    now she plays hostage to a felon
    her devotion to him hurts
    daddy told her come back home
    but pain won’t let her go to church

    she knows the answer to her prayers
    but it’s hard to keep from sin
    so she puts her faith in progress
    and sneaks to meet a friend

    baby girl waits at the waffle house
    and out the corner of her eye
    she catches mama kissing the felon
    as daddy walks inside

    baby girl was trying to change
    daddy was meeting to offer his support
    mama stopped trying long ago
    now their filing for divorce

    baby girl was to daddy
    what others never were
    she was the love he never had at home
    now he’s her forgiving father
